In the gallery viewer below, you can check out 18 stills from Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD 3×02, which features the return of Peter Macnicol’s Asgardian Professor Elliot Randolph (who fans will remember from the first season episode, 1×08 “The Well”).

Titled “Purpose in the Machine,” Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD 3×02 is officially described as follows:

This season they’re joined by guest stars Constance Zimmer as Rosalind Price and Matthew Willig as the Inhuman villain, Lash.

Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD 3×02 airs Tuesday, October 6 at 9:00pm ET/PT on ABC. The show returns one week earlier, however, with the season three premiere, “Laws of Nature”:

When Coulson and the team discover a new Inhuman, S.H.I.E.L.D. comes face to face with another organization searching for powered people. And still reeling from Simmons’ dramatic disappearance, Fitz goes to extreme lengths to try to learn how to get her back.
